Board of Directors
ICNS is made up of a parent run Board of Directors and additional parental involvement in other school responsibilities (e.g. Field trip Planner, Scheduler, etc.). All parents enrolled in the school are required to have a job, along with assisting in the classroom approximately once a month (dependent upon enrollment).
The Board is very pleased to have Diana Pratt as the teacher for both the 3 and 4 year old programs. Here is a summary of her background.
Hi, I am Diana Pratt, better known as “Ms. Diana” and am the 3’s and 4’s teacher here at ICNS. I have been teaching children for 14 years and love it. I received my degree in Nursery/Elementary Education and Psychology with a concentration in Early Education from SUNY Potsdam and my Master’s Degree in K-12 Reading from SUNY Brockport. I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 5th grade before being a stay at home mom. After my children went through preschool I taught a Young 3’s program and found that my favorite age to teach is preschool. Spending every day in preschool playing, learning, and yes, making messes has helped me stay young at heart!
I have lived right here in Irondequoit for 22 years with my husband and 2 children. Being a mom has taught me the importance of patience, laughter and play. As a family we love to read, take hikes, play outside and enjoy our dog, Jett. I am honored to be able to spend my days teaching at ICNS!
We are excited for the upcoming school year and have a ton of fun planned for all!
